image in title bar and address bar

I don't understand what you are doing?

You just want the icon appear on top right?

You should put it in between <header> tags

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/favicon.ico"">

:( i have done the same but the image is not reflecting in the title bar (top). I have done in the following way:
<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=utf-8" language="java" errorPage="" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/Images/favicon.ico" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style/pageStyleSheet.css" type="text/css"/>


<div class="container">

You should be using HTML5:

<!DOCTYPE html>

and regarding about the icon appear try drjohn suggestion

From this:

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/Images/favicon.ico" />

to this:

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="../Images/favicon.ico" />

Thanks for the time.
I have tried in all possible ways before only. I even tried by given the entire path of the favicon.ico file but image is not reflecting in the title bar. I even tried creating the favicon.ico file by following the steps given to create a favicon.ico file, but no luck.
